TENSOR THREADS : A PAINFUL TECHNIQUE ?
Behind the desire for an act of medicine or cosmetic surgery, the fear of pain is never far away for a patient.
Due to their positioning under local anesthesia in the subcutaneous adipose tissue, the placement of tension threads is not painful. Some doctors inject the anaesthesia only at the entry and exit points of the thread.
Moreover, patients are unaware that practitioners are increasingly trained to provide the greatest possible comfort in order to minimize pain during lifting thread installation.
Be aware that the feeling of pain varies from one person to another and will depend on many factors such as stress, fatigue, anxiety…
Patients report that the pain is usually felt 24 hours after the procedure and will disappear with pre and post op analgesics.
